Project I like to try this year
For this months blog Carnival from the Jewelry Artisans Community we need to write about projects we like to try this year.
Well that’s a difficult one, because there are so many things I still have to learn and want to learn too.
I already started with one of them. Branding my jewelry designs and website. 😀
I always wanted to make my own packaging materials and it never was more then a nice piece of paper and ribbon as a gift wrap.
In December I saw a youtube channel and blog from a lady in England who makes the cutest boxes and envelopes you can imagine.
So I tried to make some of the boxes with the tutorials she gave and before I knew it I was drawing and calculating to make my own designs.
I never thought it was possible for me to like something other then making jewelry, but there is.
These first 2 months of 2017 I have been making boxes, gift bags, candle boxes, punched out butterflies and flowers.
Here is the collection of boxes that I made for the branding project of my jewelry.
All the other “fun” boxes I have made and will be making will be placed in a separate gallery over time.
One of the other things I want to learn is silversmithing, not sure if I will get to that this year though.
Of course there are so many other, techniques in jewelry making that I might not have heard of and I think that when I do stumble upon those that I would want to learn them too. 🙂
What projects do you want to try or learn this year, feel free to tel me and leave comment.
I will be adding the links from our other JAC members when available.
Al mijn creaties kunnen in mijn galerijen gevonden worden.
Indien er vragen zijn, schroom dan niet om even een berichtje te sturen.
